There are also many, many different fun, whimsical and theme oriented tables available today. You can find them useful as coffee tables, end tables, side tables, or even just as an accent table to enhance that bare spot in the room. For those marine loving souls there are dolphin and lighthouse themes while for the wildlife enthusiast there are eagle, tiger, elephant, stallion, or wolf themes. To enjoy that peaceful and serene feeling a waterfall gives, there are fountains available that also serve as accent tables. You can enjoy the soothing sounds of nature right in your own home as water cascades down bonsai tree branches or a beautiful lit base. Inspirational themes such as angels and crosses are also out there just waiting to call that empty and bare spot, home. You will find various styles offered for tables like antique or antique look tables. Era specific accent tables such as Renaissance and Rococo are available along with the ever popular classic and modern tables. The choice is yours.
While rectangular or square accent tables will certainly fill the bill as an end table as well, you can also use them on the sides of your bed. One of the great things bout these tables is that they can each be different. Whether you use them in the living room or in the bedroom, you can actually use two different tables, such as one that's rectangular and one that's round, but in the same general style and finish. It's O.K. if they are very decorative, they are meant to be.
In contrast to end tables, accent tables don't come in pairs and are more ornate and embellished than your average end table. This allows you to add a little flair and flourish to your room by adding an accent table here or there that is in contrast to the other furnishings. An accent, if you will, to your other décor.
Some have even have more tricks up their sleeves, such as handsome oak magazine cabinets that have a built-in magazine rack (also perfect for holding a laptop by the way) and a small slide-out table that pulls out from the front so that you can have a cup of tea and still have room for a lamp the table's top.
Round accent tables also work well on their own. You can use them in your living room, great room or home office to provide additional space to display photos, knickknacks and keepsakes. They are also wonderful for plants, bringing a little of the outdoors into your home.
When you're shopping for these tables you may want to start with online retailers. This is particularly true if you haven't really considered adding accent tables to your home before. By shopping online, you can get an idea of the tremendous selection out there without having to bother with driving from one furniture retailer to another in the hope that they may have a couple models in stock.
